A Taylor Wimpey site has built a load of houses some in Brickwork and some in blockwork. They have put the roofs in gutters the lot. Some have windows but what have taken down all the scaffold. How dya think they will manage with the rendering. There are some big houses there and some elevations are about 2 mts from the road so i cant see a cherry picker going there.
They are even building all the garden walls around the houses.
On the plan it looks like coloured render.

Are they signing them over to housing association? I was workin on some newbuilds a while back and they have sold some to housing association and so much work has to be done before they hand over any more money. Or they could be getting so much done before their end of tax year. A site near me has sjut for one month a month befor etheir tax year starts so they aint goin back till the end of july or maybe it was june. it could be cladding but they are gonna have to get access as if they were rendered, h&s and all that.

been past again today and i cant see much room for cladding up by the soffits and the sills.
I wonder if they have dropped the scaff and decided to let the buildings settle for a while before rendering them. They do that in Germany for render only systems i have been advised.
Old Blonesy will be straight in there with his Layher scaffold and his mono Texturing.
Someone seems to have the drywall cos i can see 70mm stud

then again the render company might not have been happy with scaff quicker to strike than pay for adaptions

Were all doing it this way put you're price and you're phone number up try and get through the calls from the scaffolders and piss heads and hopefully the one bloke you won't tell to **** off is running it

Sounds about right, maybe they've had settlement trouble elsewhere and NHBC won't cover them unless they've stood for a while:RpS_thumbup:

it would be hard to sell the houses un rendered. There is still some scaffold up on the houses that haven't yet been finished and some elevations are still standing. Anyway fukk em
